He has inspired millions of people, especially , global leaders, scholars, students & young professionals, with live & online sessions of his pep talks.

SAI KAUSTUV’S PRESENT COMMUNICATION CHALLENGE:
As he is a motivational speaker & a happiness coach, so many people and organisation calls him for inspiring sessions. Kaustuv could not travel by air as his physical condition (Brittle bone disease) does not support that. So he travels by wheelchair accessible car. There is a company who provide modified wheelchair friendly cars for hiring. They have modified Tata Winger, Nissan Evelia, Wagon R, Maruti Suzuki Eeco, Tavera etc as these cars are suitable to make them wheelchair accessible.
So every time Kaustuv goes outside to receive prestigious awards or give motivational talks, he hires these cars as he can’t travel in ordinary cars because he can’t sit or enter into them. Their charges are so expansive. They come empty and return back empty, but that extra charges too they are taking from Kaustuv every time. So its nearly impossible for him and his family to continue like this which may make him confined into a place again! As Kaustuv is not having a great financial background and he is not having any permanent job, its very challenging for them to bear such big expanses at present.
So he was thinking to make a permanent arrangement by having a own wheelchair modified car through which he can travel long distance with comfort and less expanses. But at present its a big challenge for his family to get a car for their disabled son as they are going through financial crisis. If he get a new car of his own, he can give it for modification as per his physical requirements. And he can avail all invitations for talks. That will help him in his noble mission of making all people happy & stress free. He is praying to almighty & all his well wishers to help him as then only he will be able to travel around for people and for mankind.
(Sai Kaustuv is looking for a Maruti Suzuki Eeco 7 Seater Car, which he will modify from a company who are expert in modification. They will make the Car wheelchair accessible for Kaustuv. The Maruti Suzuki Eeco 7 Seater Car cost: Rs. 4.52 Lacs and Modification will come around Rs 1.5 Lacs)
Support Him to Continue his good work!
